So Chicago History Museum has an exhibit named Making Mainbocher: The First American Couturier. I mean… [giddy face]… well I loved it! As mentioned on their site, it “features thirty garments, fashion illustrations, and photography and explores the designer’s remarkable journey from his humble roots on Chicago’s West Side to the salons of Paris and New York.”
Pictured below are some of my favorite items — still stylish in today’s fashion world! Can someone teach me how to sew and help me make these. It’s kind of necessary.
